Date: 01/14/2015 - 02/21/2015
Time: All Day
Location: Hauser & Wirth (32 E. 69th St., Manhattan)
Beginning 14 January 2015, Hauser & Wirth will present ‘More paintings about poets and food’, the gallery’s first New York exhibition devoted to internationally admired Belgrade-born, London-based artist Djordje Ozbolt.
Based in London since the mid-1990s, Ozbolt is a voracious traveller and exoticist whose work wistfully ransacks cultures, traditions, curiosities, and epochs. Collapsing the narratives of his paintings and sculptures into solitary images, Ozbolt creates mysterious and often macabre imagery that persistently conflates traditional European genres – of portraiture, still life, landscape, and history painting – with motifs sourced from Christianity, African and Asian art, and cultural stereotypes, all overlaid with the artist’s signature sharp wit.
